A decade of difference in diabetes

2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the Australian Centre for Behavioural Research in Diabetes, a partnership for better health between Diabetes Victoria and Deakin University. The Centre was launched in August 2010, so this month we are celebrating this milestone in several ways: a webinar, a 5-minute video and a report. You can read our media release here. We would like to thank all those involved in our work over the past 10 years, particularly our supporters and those who have taken part in and/or engaged with our work. We also thank the Communications team at Diabetes Victoria for their assistance in producing our video and report, and the Events team for their logistical support with our webinar.

10-Year Webinar

On Thursday 20th August, Prof Craig Bennett (CEO, Diabetes Victoria) and Prof Rachel Huxley (Executive Dean, Faculty of Health, Deakin University) co-hosted a webinar commemorating the ACBRD’s 10th anniversary. Several members of the ACBRD presented on the Centre’s work during the past decade, focusing on three key themes: optimal emotional health, optimal physical health and a supportive environment. Following this, reflections were offered from a community perspective (by Dr Ashley Ng), a national perspective (by Prof Greg Johnson), and an international perspective (by Prof Simon Heller, UK). You can view the 1.5 hour webinar here:
